God’s Plan for Us

One summer, in a small group, we decided to do a study on God’s Plan for Us. Below is a summary of our study. You can also click on this link: God’s Plan for Us  to get the summary in a word document that can be read, downloaded and signed by anyone that would like to accept Christ as their Lord and Savior.

One plan is perfect in this world and it is God’s plan for us. We have a gift from God and that gift is His son. God demonstrates His own love for us in this; while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. God’s plan is perfect because He knows the past, present, and future. Christ was the only qualified candidate because He is fully human and fully divine. Christ is our bridge to eternal life.

We are saved by God’s grace. It is a free gift that cannot be earned. Having been saved, we are urged to have prayer, bible study, fellowship, and to do good works. We receive this in His church. Jesus is the head of the church body and we are the different parts that contribute to His work.

We must receive Christ to be saved. Receiving Christ into our heart is an act of faith. When we receive Christ, the Holy Spirit becomes a guide in all decisions. Changes take place when Christ moves into our heart. New priorities, perspectives, and the power of the Holy Spirit enable us to live a life of obedience to God. Christ dwells in our heart and fills it with his precious treasures – His love, His grace, and His compassion.

Many scriptures give evidence of the new relationship and                                                     help those who believe in Jesus Christ to gain assurance that they belong to God. God reveals himself through the historical record, the promise of scripture, and our relationship with Him and other Christians. God is for us because He sent His son to die for our sins.

God offers himself to all; He is a friend to everyone. It is up to us to accept His son. We should put Christ at the center of our lives because He is the way, the truth, and the life.

Romans 3:23 – Isaiah 53:6 – Romans 6:23 –Hebrews 9:27 – Romans 5:8 – 1 Peter 3:18 –  Ephesians 2:8-9 – Titus 3:5 – John 1:12 – Revelations 3:20 – 1 John 5:13 – John 5:24

Have you ever made a commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord? If you have not made this commitment, or if you are not sure, will you make it now? The following can be used as a guide to help you make this commitment:

“Jesus, I now realize you are Lord and that I have never submitted myself totally to Your Lordship. I do now choose for you to be my Lord.”

Take a look at this video: I Am – Mark Schultz. Videos like this one, pictures, and other media can be tools to build our faith and receive God’s blessings. God’s principles never change. A daily devotional time using “This Day with God” internalizes His guiding principles; becoming an instrument which pushes one to focus on Him in every activity throughout their day.

Once someone accepts Christ as their Lord and Savior, many may ask what next? Below are some writings that may help answer this question.

Realizing Your God Given Purpose – In this writing are some ideas on how one might realize God’s purpose in their life

Dream About Your Potential for Greatness – Ideas on determining a game plan or
purpose and setting goals toward that purpose.

You Can Do Anything with God Who Gives You Strength – Every day you have greater
opportunities than you have ever had before simply because you are the beneficiary of the past.

It Takes Courage – You have unique talents and abilities. Every ability and potential power you have was given by God for a purpose. All it takes is the courage to dream and the courage to plan.

See, Believe, and Achieve – What do you remember about a teacher, coach, mentor, parent, grandparent, pastor, or Sunday school teacher etc. that has made a difference in your life? In this writing, I’m remembering a talk from my high school baseball coach.

Determination – Have you ever wanted something with a passion but things are just not working out? Then someone comes along to inspire the extra determination you needed to get back on track. In this writing, are some ideas and examples along with a particular movie scene.
